  4. Leadership and Organisational Development Hub: Wellbeing and Coaching Culture

    Details

    The Leadership and Organisational Development Hub is pleased to announce the next best practice group. These virtual events provide attendees with the chance to network and share best practice while discussing a topical issue.

    What is the Leadership and Organisational Development Hub?

    The hub is a networking group set up for Housing Quality Network members who work in or have an interest in organisational development. The hub is a learning community where Organisational Development (OD) experts from across the sector collaborate to share ideas and best practice around all things to do with organisational effectiveness and transformation.

    If you’re an OD professional working in or around the housing sector, the hub will help you build your external network, find out what’s worked for others, discuss your own experiences and develop professionally.

    The third hub meeting of 2020 will focus on staff wellbeing and coaching culture, and we're pleased to be able to welcome Wolverhampton Homes to tell us about their programme. 

    Note: this meeting will be via Microsoft Teams, and not Zoom as usual.
